1
Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1
cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1
cup peanut butter
1
cup crisp rice cereal
1
pint (2 cups) peanut butter cup ice cream, softened
1
jar hot fudge topping
2
chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped, cut crosswise in half
  1. Heat oven to 350?F. Spray 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray; line with cooking parchment paper. Make brownies as directed on box, using water oil and eggs. Divide batter evenly between pans.
  2. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely in pans on cooling racks. Use parchment paper to lift out of pan. With 2 1/4-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 6 rounds from each brownie. Place 8 of the rounds on cookie sheet; set remaining 4 rounds aside.
  3. In 2-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips and peanut butter until melted. Remove from heat; stir in cereal until coated. Spread thin layer of cereal mixture over 8 brownie rounds on cookie sheet. Freeze 15 minutes.
  4. Remove brownies from freezer. Top each with small scoop of ice cream; stack 1 brownie round on top of another. Top each stack with 1 plain brownie round; press gently. (Clean up sides of cakes with knife, if necessary.) Top with dollop of hot fudge topping. Garnish with candy half.
